There are so many amazing things about this hotel. 1. PERFECT LOCATION 2. AMAZING SERVICE 3. SO MANY AMENITIES! Staying here puts you right smack dab in the heart of downtown. Even though you're on the water, nothing is more than a five-ten minute walk. The service at the hotel is tops. They make sure you have everything you need...

Harbourview Inn has a lot to offer from wine and cheese reception to nightly activities to milk and cookies. I wish I had had more time in Charleston, and more time to spend at the hotel to relax and enjoy the facilities. Everyone exuded Southern hospitality. I will definitely go back!

We studied many of Charleston's finest hotels before choosing this one. The Charleston Harbour View Inn is unparalleled in location, amenities, and accommodations. And the amazing staff is icing on the cake. We would not consider another Charleston hotel.
